George Coleman
Recently named an NEA Jazz Master, tenor saxophonist George Coleman is a revered name in jazz history for his crucial role in the Miles Davis Quintet of 1963-64 and his soulful, articulate playing on Miles’ Columbia albums Seven Steps to Heaven (1963), My Funny Valentine (1964) and Four & More (1966).  Coleman returns with a new quintet featuring tenorist Eric Alexander, whose 2014 Highnote album Chicago Fire was lauded as “one of the most vital” of his 30- plus releases by Jeff Tamarkin at JazzTimes.com: “His blowing is extraordinarily articulate and ecstatic, his tone bright and muscular, leadership and inspiration flowing nonstop.” The quintet also features a stelar rhythm section that includes Harold Mabern on piano, John Webber on bass, and George Coleman Jr. on drums. They appear at the Jazz Standard on Thursday, October 30th through Sunday, November 2nd.
